Medicine

A Master of Science is an advanced program of study that can be earned in about two years. Many schools offer online or part-time MSc programs so that busy learners can further their education in a way that is convenient for them.

Ireland lately implemented a law, which mandates all students attending university education to apply for government loans to allow them achieve their higher academic dreams. First official language is Irish, also known as Irish Gaelic, but English (the second official language) is more widely used. The national capital is Dublin. Ireland is famous for celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day (17 March) all over the world.

Top MScs in Medicine in Ireland. MSc in Translational Oncology Cancer research is a significant strength at Trinity College Dublin and is a major focus at the associated teaching hospitals, including St. James's Hospital. Global cancer incidences are rising rapidly each year and research exploring the underlying causes, mechanisms of tumour progression and response to treatments are vitally important. This M.Sc. in Translational Oncology will give both scientists and clinicians an in-depth understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of the causes and treatment of cancer. This course will explore the cellular, molecular and genetic basis of cancer and will cover both the scientific and clinical challenges pertinent to the management of tissue-specific cancers. All aspects of cancer treatment from diagnostic imaging, to standardised and ‘individualised’ molecular targeted therapies will also be explored. All students will undertake a three month research project in a designated oncology research laboratory, where they will receive training in cellular and molecular oncology. Why undertake this M.Sc? This innovative M.Sc. programme in Translational Oncology is aimed at scientists and clinicians in training who wish to: Develop their research skills Broaden their expertise in oncology Develop advanced knowledge in specific areas of scientific, translational and clinical oncology. The proposed course will offer an opportunity for graduates from a variety of backgrounds to specifically train in translational oncology in advance of undertaking an MD or PhD. The course is run by the Department of Surgery in the School of Medicine, Trinity College Dublin. The course is held... [-]

MSc in Molecular Medicine There has been an enormous growth in our understanding of how basic biological processes take place at a molecular level in recent years. This has been exemplified most notably by the sequencing of the human genome. These developments are continuing at an explosive pace and with them comes an ever sharper focus on the essential molecular mechanisms underlying the normal functioning of cells, tissues and organisms themselves. Molecular Medicine is a new field that exploits advances in molecular and cellular biology to characterise how normal cellular processes either fail, or are subverted, in disease. Increasingly, medical practitioners, professionals and researchers in the health and life sciences need to be able to understand and evaluate advances in molecular medicine in order to keep abreast with developments in their fields. The M.Sc. in Molecular Medicine programme offers a comprehensive and thoroughly up to date overview of the area, provided by experts in their fields. It will provide participants with the knowledge to evaluate the literature and perform independent research. The programme covers everything from basic science to highly specialised topics, practical work and a research project. Course Aims This MSc in Molecular Medicine sets out to provide the applicant with a thorough understanding of: The human genome at a molecular level The integration of molecular and cellular biology in relation to human diseases The molecular basis of human genetic disease The molecular interactions between microbiological pathogens and the human host The technology currently employed in molecular genetics and...
